You remember everything about them
You remember their smile
The way they hug you
But they don’t
They don’t remember the love
They don’t remember the way your eyes lit up on Christmas
You remember how they taught you how to ride a bike.
How to read
How to use sarcasm
Still they don’t
They’re dying it’s not their fault
The disease eats at their brain
They still love you
Somewhere in their mind
They recognize you
And they care
